RED CORD/ NEURAC


NEURAC (NEURomuscular-ACtivation) is an assessment and treatment method that utilizes the Redcord® pulleys and straps for support of one's own body weight to restore proper neuromuscular control and functional stability for sports or daily activities.


The system allows the body’s neuromuscular system to activate dormant core muscles and correct muscle imbalances caused by trauma, pain, overuse, or inactivity. Redcord provides an environment of controlled instability that demands the muscles to “fire” the right amount at the right time.

YOGA

Therapeutic Yoga benefits people that have difficulty moving due to illness, injury, orthopedic concerns, pregnancy and stress.


Therapeutic Yoga blends restorative,  instructional and gentle yoga, breathwork, and guided meditation techniques combined in such a way that it is an excellent choice for those who need individualized postural options for building strength and flexibility for bringing the body into balance and reducing stress.  Therapeutic yoga postures incorporate the use of props like chairs, bolsters, blankets, blocks and straps for relaxation as well as the gradual progression of postures for the preservation of optimal form.  Without the attention to form, yoga based exercise can reinforce habitual misalignment as we tend to stretch from our more flexible areas and rely on our better developed muscle groups for strength.  Therapeutic yoga encourages awakening and realigning the whole body. This yoga is also important for populations of people with osteopenia and osteoporosis, see below.

PILATES

Therapeutic Pilates emphasizes exercises that target core strength and stabilization required for rehabilitation of the body.

Pilates based exercise helps to achieve control of your body from the “powerhouse” that refers to the group of muscles in the center of the body.  When these exercises are applied to an injured body, they act to support and stabilize the body as well as prevent compensatory patterns of movement that may cause additional pain and dysfunction to an area of injury.  As a naturally rehabilitative and therapeutic method, Pilates addresses posture, muscle performance, and motor control. The use of the body’s core muscles during daily activities promotes optimal postural strength and mechanics that prevent injury and decrease chronic pain and stiffness.
